Inauguration du PEPR LUMA

Les 6 et 7 juin 2024 sera lancé officiellement le PEPR LUMA à Bordeaux. La communauté des interactions lumière matière se rassemblera pour l’inauguration institutionnelle et scientifique, incluant la présentation des Moonshot Projects (les résultats de l’AMI seront connus courant mars), du Hub Infrastructures LUMA, ainsi que le lancement des futurs appels à projets LUMA. Réservez les dates, l’événement est gratuit et largement ouvert à toutes et tous, nous espérons vous y voir nombreux ! Plus d’informations à venir.

3th Ki-NOA day : friday 24th of May : Prof. Yashima,

  • This year, we are honored to host Prof. Yashima, a distinguished expert in helical polymers (
  • You will shape the program of the day =>Submit either with an oral or a poster (on the framalink sent the 28/02/2024 by email), a comprehensive title and whether you would prefer a 10/20/30min duration for a talk  =>deadline April 8th
  • Share this information/email/framalink with your colleagues, students, or postdocs (whether registered in the Ki-NOA or not)
  • Registration is free but mandatory via the framalink
  •  Deadlines:
    • Title submission for your talk or poster: April 8th
    • Event registration (including lunch and coffee breaks): April 30th
    • Final program will be communicated on May 2nd.

The comeback of the Labtour[2024]

  • Context : In line with our previous initiatives during autumn 2022/winter 2023,  we are continuing to strengthen community interaction within KiNOA by organizing laboratory visits.
  • Deadline for enlisting the visits : 15/03/2024
  • Where ? on the framalink sent the 28/02
  • Remind : The concept is to welcome colleagues to your lab (or experiment) at a time and duration that suits your schedule.
  • Encourage you to share this information with all members of your group. It presents a valuable opportunity for them to broaden their understanding of chirality.

GPR LIGHT Symposium 2024 (Tuesday 21st May 2024)

  • When ? Tuesday 21st May 2024
  • Where ? Institut d’Optique d’Aquitaine
  • Why ? Come and attend the 2nd symposium of the LIGHT Major Research Programme (GPR LIGHT)! Presentation of the activities of the GPR with the communities concerned, meeting of the academic and industrial partners of the LIGHT Initiative, discussions on future projects.
  • ** Registration Free but Mandatory >>

Bulk electrosynthesis of patchy particles with highly controlled asymmetric features

News: Asymmetric modification of particles with various patches of different composition and size at predefined positions is an important challenge in contemporary surface chemistry, as such particles have numerous potential applications, ranging from materials science and (photo)catalysis to self-assembly and drug delivery. However, approaches allowing the synthesis of this kind of complex objects in the bulk of a solution in a straightforward way are currently lacking. In this context, bipolar electrochemistry (BE) is a powerful technique for the asymmetric modification of conducting objects. Herein, this approach is used for the highly controlled modification of particles with different metal patches, generated at specific locations of isotropic objects. The synthesis is carried out in the bulk of the solution and leads to predefined patterns of increasing complexity, including even a specific chiral arrangement of the patches.

Modulation of circularly polarized luminescence by swelling of microgels functionalized with enantiopure [Ru(bpy)3]2+ luminophores

News: Chemoresponsive microgels functionalized with enantiomeric D- or K-[Ru(bpy)3] 2+ showed tunable chiroptical properties upon swelling and shrinking. The tuning is triggered by a modulation of the local mobility of [Ru(bpy)3]2+ upon addition of fructose, controlling inter- actions and distances between [Ru(bpy)3]2+ and phenylboronic acid.
